am I crazy?

B&K ST-140 MOSFET power amplifier 105 wpc - $225

I've got an opportunity to pickup this locally, looks like very good condition.
But I've already got a boat load of amps!
Would I be crazy to buy it, or crazy not to buy it?

  • I would buy that amp in a heart beat. Might need to be recapped. Maybe offer $175 and negotiate from there. I have a Hitachi 50 WPC MOSFET amp and it sounds as good as or better than most of my other amps.

  • I have an ST140, bought it new in the late 80's. It's a decent little amp.

  • You can never have to many.

  • I agree with Craig's comment regarding recapping. If you can negotiate the cost of that into the price, it seems reasonable.

    Keep an open mind, but don't let your brain fall out.

  • Thanks guys! I think there is a bit of a collector in all of us. Went to an estate sale on Saturday, and they had a set of the big Klipshhorns for $4500. At least that decision was easy - no room, and I haven't won the lottery!

  • I'd love to build a pair of K-horns just to say I did.

     John H, thanks to JP I did get that email
  • I haven't heard a pair of Klipschorns in years, but there's no way I would pay anywhere near that amount, even if I had the money and the space.

    I would definitely rework the crossovers, I'm not a fan of the Klipsch voicing.

    About 30yrs since I've heard a pair. They were driven by McIntosh tube gear. Dynamics were very good, both micro and macro, and that was all I have to say about them.
